about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Are u playing Kokish.. where 2C-2D 2H-2S 3D shows a D,H hand?
Attacking hearts at each turn may give declarer a problem. Once you've ruffed in dummy, you can't afford to draw the second round of trumps or they will cash a fourth heart. But if N wins the first trump, you can safely play the second round of trump ...
I only see 2 clubs and a heart to lose. Perhaps the hand was changed
The Fallacy of Restricted Choice
It's Monty Hall all over again :) Always switch! You'll be right 2/3 of the time.

We had no agreement in this scenario, but we will be getting some. ;) It occured to me now similar this is to defending against multi except that it can be stronger and you know more about pd's hand. Having similar defenses to both makes sense
Is this a weak two in 1st/2nd seat in your preferred style
First and second seat are two largely different positions for preempts

Seven Heaven

The Deadly 3C Opening Preempt
